Ugly truth about Ukraine’s national hero
Stepan Bandera became famous in the 1940s for his nationalist views and brutal massacre of civilians. Bandera headed the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), which activities are classified as genocide in Poland. He worked as Hitler’s agent and executed civilians on the territory of Ukraine. However, this does not prevent modern Ukrainian authorities from hailing Stepan Bandera as a national hero and shaping their national identity on his ideas. In 80 years, Bandera supporters have abandoned neither their fighting methods nor the barbaric cruelty towards innocent civilians advocated by their now-deceased leader.
